I want got a Asus ux31 touch in black, and simply love it. There is one thing though, I am to be able to disable the touchscreen because I have heard that there is a very large increase in battery life when you do that. I am just wondering because I went to control panel-hardware and printing devices-pen and touch but there is not option to disable the touchscreen. Is there any program that will do this for you because I heard you can increase the battery life by one hour by doing this.
I have a ASUS 360 notebook touchscreen with Windows 8. Somehow when using the internet the screen has gotten stuck being Zoomed in all the way. I've tried using the touchscreen to undo the zoom but that doesn't work. When I open up the internet in the desktop mode the screen is normal size. How to undo the zoomed.
I don't like the two finger scrolling on Windows 8 for Asus. It works decent but I still prefer the old fashions one finger scrolling it seems to be more fluid when scrolling through pages. For me it still feels unnatural to use two fingers; I want my Windows 8 PC back and toss the mac feature for two finger scrolling. I'm not sure why Asus added this because it really ruins my Windows 8 experience as scrolling is an essential function for workflow. I'll put it this way if one finger scrolling was enabled I would have a 10 out of 10 experience versus two finger scrolling I would have a 7 out of 10 experience.
I have an older HP TouchSmart All-In-One touchscreen desktop computer. Decided to put Windows 8 on it this week because it's supposed to be cool with touch screens.
Question: Why can't I use the hot corners with my finger? Is there a way to make this touchscreen desktop to work like a Win 8 Tablet? I want to use this computer 100% mouse and keyboard free. Basically, I want it to work like a tablet. For example, it's annoying to have to grab the mouse just to open the start menu... Defeats the purpose of Win 8. I'm seriously about to go back to Win 7.
current versions of Jump Desktop for iOS and xtralogic remote desktop for android is that they allow you to switch the touchscreen to touchpad mode, and then control the pointer with the screen like a touchpad instead of having to hit something with your fingertip. This great for when you need a precise pointer, or for controlling the cursor from a corner without having to release your grip on the device, but in addition to that, on Windows 8 I could also see potentially using this to control a second monitor (like a TV) with your touch monitor (say the newly announced wireless lenovo monitor connected to a windows 8 HTPC).
I don't have windows 8 yet, but I was wondering if there was any such utility for windows 8 currently or in development. If the thin and light wifi monitor idea takes off, it would be great for an HTPC - you could play video on the TV while browsing or such on the tablet, yet you would only have to have and use one computer.
For photographers and artists you could use the USB3 version of the display or small touch capable cintiq on your desk in front of you, pushing your keyboard and mouse out of the way, but with a quick mode switch you could still control your main monitor without shuffling things around (something I've found frustrating when switching between a traditional wacom tablet and keyboard - something is always out of easy reach). Of course that also assumes you could still bring up the on screen keyboard on the touch display.
I have an Acer Aspire M computer with a touch screen that runs Windows 8.1. I was having issues with the touch screen, so I went to download the drivers from the Acer website. However, when I restarted my computer to complete the installation, it wouldn't allow me to use either the mouse, touch screen, or keyboard.
Normally, after loading, a personalized picture will appear on the screen, displaying the time, connectibility, and strength of the network. The user is then supposed to swipe up, click on, or press space to move the picture, at which point the login screen appears. My computer loads normally when starting, but won't allow me to use the mouse, touch screen, or keyboard to move the picture out of the way, so I cannot access the login screen.
I have already contacted the Acer company support and attempted to use the battery reset pinhole, but to no avail. Is there anything I can do, besides a factory reset or using it as a cat bed?
After the Tab first connected to the internet, it has downloaded some updates that it installed at last shut down process. Next time i started the device, the touchscreen hasn't worked. I tried to reboot is, but the problem is still here..
Does Windows 8 control the layout of the on-screen keyboard of a touchscreen monitor? Or is it the monitor? An online retailer is advertising the monitor as having the QWERTZ layout, but I am used to QWERTY and want to be sure that I can change it.
I am running 64 bit Windows 8 on a VAIO touchscreen laptop. Yesterday, my screen started randomly dimming itself. When I went to change the brightness back up, as I held down the button it kept jumping back to a low brightness. When I tried setting my brightness in the power options, it would save to be bright for a little while, then after a time it would dim again. Upon checking the settings, it set it self to have near minimum brightness. My PC does not have adaptive brightness and my graphics drivers are up to date.
Totally new to W8, why I cannot simply transfer video from my W7 Samsung laptop to my W8 HP Touchscreen 11.6 netbook? Picture, docs, all okay, but with video it will transfer the sound but not the picture.
Samsung all in one DP700A7D 3 weeks old, did recommended SW updates, now no touchscreen.
Spent hours on remote support with samsung, and apparently I know much more then them, and no solution, I don't think wiping a 3 week old computer and reinstalling everything is an option, could it be drivers, although I cannot find a driver for the samsung touchscreen, everything goes back to SW updates, which has no updates available.
Windows update has been really messing with my pc lately. I ran update and when it installed the updates my integrated mouse ended up not working. I rolled back update and installed the updates one by one and the one I ended up not installing was the camera codec pack. Now the problem I am having is that my touchscreen won't work. If I talk to HP support they do the most basic thing they can and then when they can't fix it they tell me that I have to ship it to them because hardware is broken.
In windows 7 I was able to disable the thumbnails. When I click on a stack of programs in the task bar it brings up previews. I want to to just switch between them and not make me click on one of the preview or list items.
I recently bought a new ASUS K55N-DS81 laptop and its been working fine since I got it but today (April 21st, 2013) while browsing in firefox the computer froze completely, it was restarted by pressing the button and afterwards only the ASUS splash page would load with the circle loading animation, it would never progress anywhere just constantly spin. It turned on once and asked me to go back to a previous restore point, during which it froze, now it powered on once again and it updated some things while booting, I got the event log from the event viewer so what caused this behavior in the computer.
So this morning my dad went to power off his ASUS K55N Notebook, and it didn't turn off correctly, the screen went black, but the system stayed powered on (had to perform a hard shutdown). He didn't perform any Windows Update(s) or install new drivers prior to this, he didn't change anything, and just now it did the same thing.
the Notebook was performing perfectly fine before today.

USB recovery image for a Vivotab Smart? I put mine on a flash drive, deleted it from my tablet's hard drive, and then that flash drive died! It will be a huge file to download but it would be a very important backup.
I'm trying to get rid of the small preview windows that apear above the taskbar in Win 8. I edited the registry at HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorerAdvanced and added both a DisablePreviewWindow and DisablePreviewDesktop value and set them to 0x01. Still, the windows appear. UAC is entirely disabled.
I just bought a Sony Vaio and I'm having a problem with selection.
As seen in the image below, when I select something - anything - it becomes highlighted by this terrible blue box. What can I do to disable it? I can't find any options in Control Panel related to this.
